Like many Mother Earth News readers, we continue to expand our capabilities to adapt and build homestead resiliency and up our emergency preparedness. We’ve doubled our freezer capacity for food storage and have doubled down on our wood supply, just as national natural gas rates seem to be taking off.

Inflation looks to be anything but “transitory” or “temporary,” despite the messaging from the politicians. So, we made an investment in Monroe Money for local future purchases, where we received $20 bonus on every $100 invested; turns out, that’s a 20-percent guaranteed return. We also stocked up on some provisions, like rice and coffee - plus flour for our home-based food product business under our state’s cottage food law. Again, it’s looking like most of these items will be from 5 to 20 percent more expensive in six months, assuming we can even find them on the shelves. And the next wave of covid-19 currently hitting Europe will likely hit the US this winter, now that our borders are much more open to international travelers.

We’ve also invested in a few more products that may make the difference in an emergency situation, or if we have to go on the road for some reason, whether because of a crisis or for adventure outdoors. After the assault on the nation’s Capitol and the big freeze in Texas that exposed electric grid vulnerability, anything seems possible, at least to my wife Lisa Kivirist and I. So, we keep preparing. The following list are a few new items we’ve added to our stash.
